India's challenges in dental care include a lack of infrastructure, poor quality treatment and little or no follow-up care. To tackle these three areas, Clove, the largest dentistry network, has created a quality management methodology. To help improve treatment quality, Clove applies an anonymous peer review process for around 40% of the treatments in its clinics, this equates to 5,000 a month on average. For post-treatment care, its system divides the life cycle of each patient into stages which are tracked and monitored. Some outcomes from these processes include a 92% success rate in root canals, compared to an 84% world average and a dental filling success rate at 97%.
